Nice review and story. Thanks. I was in college at that time and I do remember the song. For some reason that I don't know, old-timey music was big during the early psychedelic era. The Dead did it in their own American way and the Brits did theirs. Sgt. Pepper's LHC Band was full of this stuff. Traffic was in there too. I think they referred to it as dance-hall music or something like that. It's amazing what sticks in the gray cells after all this time.
